Welcome to the Totally Techniques International Design Team blog hop!  I am Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Canada, and you have just arrived here from the talented Annette Elias from The Netherlands.

This month we are focusing on a technique called “Glitter Splatter.”  The basics of the technique are:

  1. Mix together Liquid Multipurpose glue and water in a container.
  2. Pick up some of the mixture with a paint brush or aqua painter.
  3. Flick the mixture onto the paper.
  4. Sprinkle glitter over the glue splatter and allow to dry.
  5. Be sure to wash the aqua painter well to remove any excess glue.

For the second card, I wanted to use the same technique but to create the feeling of a night sky:

I used the glue mixture to paint the edge of the moon to add some shimmer to it:

I loved trying this technique!  I can definitely see me using it more!
